Am I pregnant??

Hi everyone! I am new to this board, and hoping someone can help me answer my question.

I am 23 years old and am wondering if I might be pregnant. I switched from Ortho Tricyclen Lo to Yaz, and didnt know that I was supposed to use another form of contraception until the new birth control kicks in. Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex during that time period (around a day or two before my ovulation day) and for the past week and a half I have been experiencing symptoms which seem to be that of pregnancy.

My breasts are sore (not TERRIBLE, but they hurt), my appetite has definitely increased, I am more tired then usual, I have noticed that I am getting little bumps around my nipples (i had some before but some of them seem to have gotten bigger and I think I might have gotten a few more), and I have had very mild cramping in my lower part of my stomach (abdomen area). I dont know if this could possibly be side effects from this new birth control (Yaz) or if I am pregnant.

I am now 2 days late for my period, but have taken a couple pregnancy tests throughout the last week and they are negative. Deep down i think im pregnant, but my boyfriend told me that I am talking myself into it..im just so confused. Can I still be pregnant even though the home pregnancy tests are negative?

Anyone that can give me some answers or advice, I would greatly appreciate it!!

You most likely are not pg. The swith of horomones, is probably what is making you late, and could cause pg symptoms.

Re: Am I pregnant??

I had this problem with swaping pills. Even thought we used other forms of contreception I found myself 4 weeks late. I was emotional, my breats were much bigger (and I had lots of lumps around my nipples - they also changed colour!) I felt sick, my tummy was bloated and like I said I was 4 weeks late. I did several tests (around 6 I think!) However they all said I was negative. In the end I let nature take its course and I started to bleed. At times if u think too much about something it can delay your period.

Try and relax. If ur seriously in doubt. You could either get a Clearblue test, the one that dates ur conception date too. Their amazin 99.9% or something. Then again u can request a blood test from your GP. Cheap and easy!

Good luck. I hope whatever the outcome your happy! xx
